Planet X Tempest Titanium Gravel Road Bike Shimano Ultegra R8000 650B Wheel Planet X Tempest Titanium Gravel Road Bike Shimano Ultegra R8000 650B Wheel

Titanium has a justly deserved reputation as a wonder material. No other metal matches it for strength-to-weight ratio and no carbon frame can beat it for durability and ride feel. It blends the low weight and efficiency of carbon with the handling feel of the best steel bikes. Titanium bikes always stand out from the crowd with looks and longevity that are peerless at any price; with a cast metal head badge and subtle brushed 'Invasion Stripe' detailing the Tempest is no exception. Everyone should have at least one titanium bike in their collection.

Conceived as an adventure bike for ride-anywhere cyclists. Triple butted main tubes contribute to the Tempest's lightweight feel while carefully ovalized and tapered rear triangle tubes provide subtle vertical compliance that helps to smooth out the roughest trails. Ovalized seat and down tubes mate to a 68mm bottom bracket shell to provide a firm, responsive pedalling platform. With a slightly sloping top-tube, a relaxed riding position and mounts for mudguards and panniers the Tempest is perfect for epic adventures.

Groupset: Shimano's Ultegra groupset has been upgraded and the result is the incredible Ultegra 8000 groupset. Shimano have worked to improved the efficiency of the shifting, improved brake feel and delivers a smoother working, better-looking groupset that's simply worth every penny.

A compact 50/34t chainset combines with the new Ultegra 8000 11-30t 11-speed cassette to give an excellent gear spread, close enough for fast road work but still including a bailout gear for tackling those ultra steep climbs. Wider flatter crank arms retain Shimano's Hollowtech2 technology and improved stiffness at the bottom bracket has obviously been delivered.

Ultegra 8000 moves to polymer coated gear cables for the slickest possible shifts. revised lever ergonomics have delivered a sweeter gear shift feel and the slightly larger downshift paddle is easier to hit with gloved hands. Inline cable adjusters are a thing of the past with the new levers containing Allen key adjustable cable pre-tensioning.

The biggest change is out back where Shimano has integrated their Shadow Derailleur design from their Dura Ace and off-road groupsets. Shadow geometry places the rear mech further under the cassette, giving slicker shifts, protecting from crash damage and allowing for larger cassettes for enhanced gear ratios. The front mech gets a new cage and pivot design to help it accommodate the wider gear ratios and trend towards wider tyre sizes.

If you've ridden Ultegra before you know how much care and attention Shimano put into it. It's their best selling groupset and offers the best mix of price/performance. This new version is no exception it's simply superb.

Avid BB5 mechanical disk brakes come as standard on the Tempest and these easily adjustable disc brakes are exceptional examples of the art. They provide fingertip control and impressive stopping power. We love them for their all-weather braking ability and the extra confidence this gives us on every ride. If you intend riding fully loaded with a rear rack and frame-mount bags then sure fire stopping power is a big plus.

Wheelset: Clement Ushuaia 650b Gravel / Adventure wheels featuring tubeless compatible bead seat and a strong 25mm deep profile. 23mm internal width makes them perfect for larger tyres (subejct to frame clearance).

The Clement brand has a proud history, many cycling legends have raced on their tubs and they've finally moved into manufacturing their very own wheels. The Ushuaia wheelsets are Intended for Gravel and adventure riding and come in a number of different sizes. All wheels share the same construction including a tubeless ready, hookless rim and double butted J-bend spokes.

Simply put these wheels are made for adventure. They're made for lugging loads across continents, uphill, down dale, over mountain and across the plains. They're named after the southernmost tip of South America. They're not super-lightweight XC racing queens; they're solid, durable, and utterly dependable for mile after mile

Weight: 1,620g
